Freescale is the owner of the technology: you won't find better docs than that although some timings are still incorrect in the official docs - nothing that is of concern to you atm surely.
Motorola was kept as a brand for mobile and 3g devices Freescale is now the semiconductor business.
For a beginners book I can't really recommend these users manuals, try with some tutorials first, and once you think you grasp their concept go for the cpu manuals for fully authentic information, not urban legends
Basic/generic electronics and cpu knowledge can be a plus to understand some of the stuff most notably about signaling, interrupts, gates and interfaces. On the other hand you can live without understanding them properly as long as you are only interested in casual programming.
